Volunteer/ Intern

UCT VolunteerPASSOP relies heavily on the diverse backgrounds, knowledge and skills of its volunteers and interns. At any given time, there are usually 5-15 interns and volunteers working with us, mostly students from the United States, Europe and South Africa. Their roles and tasks vary and are designed to match their own expertise and interests, as well as PASSOP’s priority needs and campaigns at different times.

What you need to Volunteer/ Intern

To volunteer at PASSOP, a background or strong interest in one or more of the following areas is recommended: law, human rights, migration issues, political science, development studies and journalism. We are looking for highly motivated and dynamic young people who are passionate and fearless in standing up and fighting for the rights of the vulnerable, the poor and the marginalised.

If you are interested in volunteering at PASSOP, please send us your application form and let us know what motivates you to want to get involved with PASSOP. Also, we welcome you to visit our intern testimonial page below, to find out more about interning at PASSOP.

We recommend you to read the information on the website, our guidelines as well as to orientate yourself in order to find out topics you might be interested into.
